Shine In Simplicity With Shibori

Shine In Simplicity With Shibori - Fabriclore

The origin of Shibori dates back to an old-age fascinating and multifaceted Japanese culture. A kind of shaped-resist dyeing technique, the word Shibori is derived from “Shiboru” which means to wring, press or squeeze. It is a unique method of embossing textiles with a plethora of smooth, blurry-edged motifs and designs. With different cultures adding their own allegory to this dyeing method, it is one craft that is treasured and admired around the globe in various forms.

What makes it different from the usual tie & dye is the way it is crafted. The designs are first stitched with the help of threads and needles and are crumpled, folded, tugged, and twisted in different forms prior to dyeing. While the stitched areas remain undyed, the sews are gently undone giving it a striking three-dimensional look and feel.
